Hi Lars,

 

did you disable QOS on the ISL-Ports?

hi,

 

check in the manual the requirements for two switchs to merge, and specially that the defzone is the same.

Use the "fabstatsshow" command as well as the "fabriclog" command to try and determine where the incompatibility is. Can be anywhere but most often an incorrect timer like R_A_TOV or E_D_TOV or even PID format or addres mode.

 

Lots of option but your post doesn't provide much info.
